Seemed sturdy when they arrived and i figured i'd got a good pair. Turns out i was wrong.
about 3-4 months in, having looked after them very carefully, having read some of the other reports, the damn things just fell apart. Absolutely fine up until that point, and they did feel good, but they just snap randomly.
You'll be happy with the sound (I was, although it took me a few weeks to get used to the difference from in ear phones), and you'll think everything is ok and that you have a good pair, and then for no apparent reason, and completely out of the blue, they'll snap, and you've wasted £15 quid cos skullcandy will only give you half the money back, and only after an argument.
don't bother. Get another brand. they sound good and look good, until they fall to pieces!
